Nearly 100 People Turn Out For The Open For Business: Small Business Neighborhood Forum

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling hosted his first Small Business Neighborhood Forum Tuesday Night at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. It was a great success with nearly 100 people in attendance. The Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) joined with the City of Flint in this effort. Presenters included: Derrick Jones, City Of Flint Purchasing Director; Stan Blood, VP GRCC; Nell Taylor, Business Manager GRCC; Robert Goodman, Director of Flint Enterprise Community; and Dustin Frigy, Director of Procurement Technical Assistance Center at the GRCC.

Those in attendance received information on how to start and grow a business, how to secure government contracts, how to find funding sources, and they learned of the benefits of being a member of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce.
